Architectural design leads the way in engineering progress

The world's newest, tallest, residential tower comprising 117 storeys and aptly named World One in Mumbai, is due to be completed later this year. Forming a trilogy of mega skyscrapers, collectively called The 'World Towers', the development has been hailed as a "sculptural statement so powerful, it will transform Mumbai's skyline forever'.

Designed in a curvilinear shape, and constructed out of glass and steel, World One will become a symbol of Mumbai's aspiration and drive on an international level. It's not just the exterior that will capture global interest and recognition, spanning over an incredible 17 acres, and also house a pool, gum, cricket pitches and pavilion, as well as 290 luxury apartments. overlooking the Arabian Sea. The interiors will be designed by Armani/Casa and comprise a blend of "simplicity, sensitivity, sophistication and flair", which encapsulates the very essence of Armani.


Other extravagances include a huge fountain in the centre of the courtyard, which will have water jets accompanied by music and ambient lighting to reflect Indian dance culture. Each residence comprising three and four bedrooms, will follow the curvilinear structure and have viewing decks with stunning sea views.
